About the NCP
The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises are supported by a unique implementation mechanism. The adhering governments must establish a National Contact Point (NCP) to promote the Guidelines and to facilitate mediated solutions to the issues raised by Complaints of non-compliance with the Guidelines. More than 250 “cases” have been raised along with the NCPs in the last 10 years. Most deal with employment relations, environment and human rights violations.
